UX Writer and Content Strategist
After years of working as a content and copywriter, I discovered the world of UX and haven't looked back. I love the challenge of guiding users towards a goal through succinct, research-informed language that makes their problems feel effortless to solve. UX is the poetry of technical writing, and I'm excited by the endless possibility of the industry.
UX writing isn't as simple as filling in the text on a pre-designed screen. As a UX Writer, I fight to make sure the user can easily understand and accomplish their goals. I'm here to solve their problems. To do that, I need to work with researchers, designers, project managers, product owners, and developers in a collaborative partnership. As a result, we can collectively create the best experience possible for our users.
UX Writing Values
Clear, concise, conversational - in that order.
Users come first.
Look at everything holistically. It's not just the screen I'm working on right now, but how it interacts with the rest of the platform and the flow.
Consistency is key.
UX decisions should be research-based as much as possible.
Ask questions. Lots of them.
Despite being new to the UX field, I dove right in. I took the initiative to take classes and create screens and flows so that I could not only sharpen my UX skills, but also show that even as a new UX writer, I know how to look at what the user needs and solve the problems at hand.
